COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- A train that will provide dinner and entertainment trips in mid-Missouri has arrived in Columbia.
The COLT locomotive pulling five cars and two engines arrived Thursday from Waterloo, Iowa.
General Manager Greg Weber says he hopes to begin the Columbia Star Dinner Train service by the late March or early April.
The Columbia Tribune reports that plans are for a three-hour round trip for $69 per person. The trips will be offered Friday and Saturday evenings, with brunch on Sundays. The trail also will be available for private events.
The Columbia Convention and Visitors Bureau approved an application for a $45,000 grant to transport the train cars to Columbia.
